During their meeting this morning (Monday), the Carroll County Board of Supervisors pledged $15,000 in matching funds for a proposed trail in Arcadia to connect the community with its ballfield. Representatives from the Arcadia Share the Road project, Pat Vogl, Bruce Vonnahme, May Vonnahme, and others, have been planning for this project for several years. Vogl, who works with the Arcadia Betterment and Development Corporation, says the community has seen increasing foot and bike traffic along 185th Street and Division Street with new housing developments, and residents are concerned about safety.

Due to space constraints, an entirely new trail would not be constructed. Instead, they hope to widen the roadway and create an adjacent walking/biking path. Initial estimates for the first phase of the project are around $130,500. Vogle says they are also planning to extend the sidewalks in those neighborhoods.
